Howie's info is great; it was one of the first things I ever found on the internet...

A nice little book by my friend Mairi:

Smoke Plants of North America

Even got a mix in honor of Susun:

My mix has some tobacco in it, but I think its better than any other I've had.

sweet. i'm def gonna read read the Ross book.
thanx all for all links.
the guy at my local herb shop said you can smoke any herb w/o it causing u great that careful experimentation is okay.
i loved howie's article. from him i found the benefits of mugwort. what better way to enhance dreaming than thru smoke!
and it also gives me a good feeling as well. haven't made a tea of it yet, but would like to compare that to the effects of smoking it.

I smoke a blend of mullein, yarrow, damiana, with just a dash of mint, rose petal, and powdered cinnamon.

Sometimes a dragon's gotta blow smoke, and tobacco just doesn't do it for me!

I am excited to find links on recipes of making smoking blends. But, as I am a non smoker, I was wondering if any of these smoking blends be addictive or harmful to the body.

Smoking mullein will indeed break up bad chest congestion when mullein tea isn't doing the trick.
A reformed smoker told me smoking mullein helped him quit tobacco. He wanted all the mullein I had at a gardener's barter event to share with his smoker friends who also wanted to stop.

A woman named Mairi Ross wrote this cool little book called smoke plants of north america. i quite like it.

I have a page on a blend I make here:

I've also made a blend with a tobacco, apples leaves and bark, and chamomile that's quite nice. Maybe a wee bit of crushed clove. Yum.
